Progress report

Public information events have been held to announce the preferred route for the A46/A428 Binley junction.

The exhibitions displayed the new design for the A46/A428 Binley roundabout and members of the project team were on hand to answer questions and talk customers through the preferred route. We'd like to thank everyone who was able to attend the events.

You can download a copy of the Preferred Route Announcement brochure from the documents tab below.

We also have a fly through video of how the new junction will look once this project has been completed.

What's next?

Following the public information exhibitions and preferred route announcement, the detailed design phase of the project will continue, feedback from the public and from our ongoing stakeholder engagement will be considered throughout the design phase.

We'll provide an update on the next steps for the project later in the year. The project is on track, with construction expected to begin in 2020 and be completed in 2022.

Why we need this scheme

The A46 is a strategic link between the East and West Midlands, connecting Coventry and Warwickshire to the motorway network. Current congestion levels are having a serious effect on communities and businesses and could constrain future development in the area.

Aims

The aims of the scheme are to:

  • improve safety
  • support the growing economy
  • support the smooth flow of traffic
  • increase capacity
  • relieve congestion
